Rubha Rèidh Lighthouse at night
Rubha Rčidh Lighthouse at night
The lighthouse itself is still a fully functional navigation aid as can be observed by the beams from the lamps shown on this image. The shorter length exposure shown in NG7391 : Lighthouse at Rubha Rèidh shows the individual beams of light which here are smeared out by the longer exposure.

The keepers' accommodation is now a hostel.

On the horizon one can observe the lights of houses and streetlights of Lewis.
